Self-Care Through Arts by Neha Oswal Bafna

The value of art has been recognised way before we came together as a society. It has been a way to reflect, express, capture and see things with a different perspective since primitive ages, cave paintings are an example of the same and the value or art has only grown exponentially over time. Art as a means of self-care is something that we’ve recognised immense benefits of and Art Therapy becomes our medium of experiencing these benefits.

Keeping the same in mind, Neha has come up with this powerful session, exclusively for women which will use tools such as creative visualisation, meditation, interactive games and sharing to dive deeper into areas such as self love, boosting confidence and self esteem and self expression. This empowering session will not only enhance self growth but will also help the participants explore the true self through powerful creative art therapy exercises and tools.

The beauty of these sessions is that they can be customised as per the needs of the group or an individual and benefit each and every participant in a way that it uplifts them, empowers them and provide them with self care tools for life.
